TECHNICAL NOTES 



The NIH Data Book (Basic Data Relating to the National 
Institutes of Health) has been published annually since 1 961 . 
The booklet is prepared under the direction of the Chief, Pro- 
gram Analysis Branch, DPA, OPPE (see Abbreviations, page 
59). Single copies of the current issue are available at NIH 
information offices. 

Detail may not add to totals because of rounding and, 
where noted, because of data included in totals only. 
Historical data are often revised. 

Sources of the data: Data are derived from NIH records 
and studies unless otherwise noted. DPA develops the data 
on national and Federal support for health R&D from annual 
surveys and other sources. Other sources of information are: 
NIH awards — Statistics and Analysis Branch, DRG; NIH 
obligations, appropriations, and FTTP training awards — 
Division of Financial Management, OA; NIH staff — Division 
of Personnel, ORS; Prevention — NIH Coordinator for 
Disease Prevention and Health Promotion; Nutrition — NIH 
Nutrition Coordinating Committee. Morbidity and mortality 
statistics are compiled by NCHS, with adjustments for 1970 



mortality statistics made by NIH, based on NCHS com- 
parability ratios (see NCHS telephone number, pages 57-58). 

Coverage: Programs that have been transferred out of 
NIH — NIMH, DRMP, DBS, and BHME — are excluded from 
all data except national and Federal health R&D. The tran- 
sition quarter (see "TQ," page 61) is excluded throughout. 

Supplemental awards, unless noted, are only counted 
when the parent award is from prior years' funds, and such 
supplements if multiple are counted as one. Since 1982, 
cooperative agreements have been shown under both 
research projects, research centers, and "other research" 
grants. See Table 24 for classification of research grants. 

Definitions: "Health R&D" denotes medical and health- 
related projects, resources, and general support, but no train- 
ing or construction. In health R&D series (pages 1-5), the NIH 
component contains certain items not classified as research 
in other tables, such as cancer control, portions of NLM and 
NIH direct operations, and foreign currency funds not directly 
appropriated to NIH. 



"Prevention" includes both prevention research and 
arevention-relevant research. The former includes research 
designed to yield results directly applicable to interventions 
or prevention of disease or progression of detectable but 
asymptomatic disease. The latter includes studies aimed at 
slucidating the chain of causation of acute and chronic dis- 
jases, and therefore includes identified basic research efforts. 

"Appropriations" represent an authorization by an act of 
Congress that permits Federal agencies to incur obligations 
and to make payments out of the Treasury for specified pur- 
poses. An appropriation usually follows enactment of 
authorizing legislation. Appropriations do not represent cash 
actually set aside in the Treasury for purposes specified in 
he appropriation act; they represent limitations of amounts 
hat agencies may obligate during the period of time specified 
n the respective appropriation acts. 

"Obligations" represent amounts of orders placed, grants 
and contracts awarded, services received, and similar trans- 
actions during a given period that will require payments dur- 
ng the same or a future period. 

"Obligations" vs "awards" reporting: Differences be- 
ween "obligations" (Tables 5-9) and "awards" (Tables 
10-30) are caused by differences in the treatment of certain 



items (cancer control, scientific evaluation, administering vs. 
funding BID, etc.) in the accounting methods used by the 
various data sources. For example, in obligations tables, 
cancer control is separately identified; in award tables, it is 
integrated within various mechanisms. This category ac- 
counts for the largest dollar difference between the obliga- 
tions vs awards mechanism tables. Obligations tables in- 
clude scientific evaluation grants and cooperative 
agreements; award data exclude such grants and 
agreements ($12.5 million in FY 1984). In obligations tables, 
BID data are shown under the BID which received the ap- 
propriation; in award tables, the data are presented under 
the BID with the administering responsibility. Obligations 
tables include amounts appropriated to NIH but transferred 
to other Federal agencies for administration, and exclude 
funds appropriated to other agencies and transferred to NIH 
for administration. Conversely, award tables include funds 
appropriated to other agencies but transferred to and admin- 
istered by NIH, and exclude NIH interagency agreements.

"Ph.D." or equivalent are under "M.D." t|\lot available. 
NOTE: Number of Persons exceeds corresponding number 
of FTTPs (see Table 31) because a trainee in a part-time 
position is counted as a full unit under Persons but a 
fraction of a unit under FTTPs. In addition, these data are 
not strictly comparable with FTTP counts because of 
somewhat different methods used by the two data sources.

TECHNICAL NOTES 



The NIH Data Book (Basic Data Relating to the National 
Institutes of Health) has been published annually since 1 961 . 
The booklet is prepared under the direction of the Chief, Pro- 
gram Analysis Branch, DPA, OPPE (see Abbreviations, page 
60). Single copies of the current issue are available at NIH 
information offices. 



Coverage: Supplemental awards, unless noted, are only 
counted when the parent award is from prior years' funds, 
and such supplements if multiple are counted as one. Since 
1982, cooperative agreements have been shown under 
research projects, research centers, and "other research" 
grants. 



Detail may not add to totals because of rounding and, 
where noted, because of data included in totals only. 
Historical data are often revised. 

Sources of the data: Data are derived from NIH records 
and studies unless otherwise noted. DPA develops the data 
on national and Federal support for health R&D from annual 
surveys and other sources. Other sources of information are: 
NIH awards — Statistics and Analysis Branch, DRG; NIH 
obligations, appropriations, and FTTP training awards — 
Division of Financial Management, OA; NIH staff — Division 
of Personnel, ORS; Prevention — NIH Coordinator for 
Disease Prevention and Health Promotion; Nutrition — NIH 
Nutrition Coordinating Committee. Morbidity and mortality 
statistics are compiled by NCHS, with adjustments by NIH. 



Definitions: "Health R&D" denotes medical and health- 
related projects, resources, and general support, but no train- 
ing or construction. In health R&D series (pages 1-5), the NIH 
component contains certain items not classified as research 
in other tables, such as cancer control, portions of NLM and 
NIH direct operations, and foreign currency funds not directly 
appropriated to NIH. 

"R&D grants" includes research project grants, center 
grants, and "other research" grants. See Table 24 for 
classification. 

"R&D contracts" includes both intramural and extramural 
"N01 " contracts and SBIR contracts. For NLM, not all con- 
tracts would strictly be considered R&D. 



"Prevention" includes both prevention research and 
prevention-relevant research. The former includes research 
designed to yield results directly applicable to interventions 
for prevention of disease or progression of detectable but 
asymptomatic disease. The latter includes studies aimed at 
elucidating the chain of causation of acute and chronic dis- 
eases, and therefore includes identified basic research efforts. 

"Appropriations" represent an authorization by an act of 
Congress that permits Federal agencies to incur obligations 
and to make payments out of the Treasury for specified pur- 
poses. An appropriation usually follows enactment of 
authorizing legislation. Appropriations do not represent cash 
actually set aside in the Treasury for purposes specified in 
the appropriation act; they represent limitations of amounts 
that agencies may obligate during the period of time specified 
in the respective appropriation acts. 

"Obligations" represent amounts of orders placed, grants 
and contracts awarded, services received, and similar trans- 
actions during a given period that will require payments dur- 
ing the same or a future period. 

"Obligations" vs. "awards" reporting: Differences be- 
tween "obligations" (Tables 5-10) and "awards" (Tables 
1 1-30) are caused by differences in the treatment of certain 



items (cancer control, scientific evaluation, administering vs. 
funding BID, etc.) in the accounting methods used by the 
various data sources. For example, in obligations tables, 
cancer control is separately identified; in award tables, it is 
integrated within various mechanisms. This category ac- 
counts for the largest dollar difference between the obliga- 
tions vs. awards mechanism tables. Obligations tables 
include scientific evaluation grants and cooperative 
agreements; award data exclude such grants and 
agreements. In obligations tables, BID data are shown under 
the BID which received the appropriation; in award tables, 
the data are presented under the BID with the administer- 
ing responsibility. Obligations tables include amounts ap- 
propriated to NIH but transferred to other Federal agencies 
for administration, and exclude funds appropriated to other 
agencies and transferred to NIH for administration. Con- 
versely, award tables include funds appropriated to other 
agencies but transferred to and administered by NIH, and 
exclude NIH interagency agreements.

'Based on year of funding. Excludes FIC. "M.D. and Ph.D." or 
equivalent are under "M.D." "'"Not available. 
NOTE: Number of persons exceeds corresponding number of 
FTTP (see Table 31) because a trainee in a part-time position 
is counted as a full unit under persons but a fraction of a unit 
under FTTP. In addition, these data are not strictly comparable 
with FTTP counts because of somewhat different methods used 
by the two data sources.

'Includes all costs except extramural awards. '•'Includes direct costs only. 
NOTE: The BRDPI for FY 1979 forward has been re-based and completely revised. Revisions included incorporation of indirect costs 
for the higher education sector and use of a new source for higher education personnel data. The "All performers" values for years prior 
to FY 1979 have been estimated using the Implicit Price Deflator of the GNP. To calculate an index with some year other than 1979 equal 
to 100, divide each year's index value by that of the year selected to equal 100 and then multiply by 100. For example, to calculate an 
all-performers index with 1976 = 100, as was used to arrive at constant dollars in this publication, (a) divide each value in the all-performers 
row by 79.33, and (b) multiply each result by 100 (i.e., move the decimal point two places to the right).
